I am assuming you removed the distributor? If so identify #1 cylinder in the firing order. It must be at top dead center (TDC) on the compression stroke. The timing marks should be lined up dead on at center. Then, you install the distributor with the rotor pointing directly at #1 cylinder. It is possible to be a gear notch off in either direction. If it is dead on then the engine will start. From there you will need to set the ignition timing with a timing light to correct advance by rotation of the distributor. May be 6 - 8 degrees BTDC? Consult manual for correct advance degrees.

2000 GMC Yukon 1500xl 4wd. I replaced the starter relay and now the starter and flywheel are out of sync. The switch panel on dash is back on. How do I get them reset into sync?

the starter and flywheel cannot "unsync" unless you removed the starter and reinstalled it incorrectly! .. the starter pinion is moved "up or forward" on the starter shaft and engages the flywheel when the starter is "engaged".. the flywheel never moves from its factory installed position (unless something catastrophic happened).. the starter pinion always engages unless there is something wrong with the starter

How do I line-up the flywheel timing marks and where are they. I fitted new clutch and had to remove the flywheel

There should have been a dowel pin in crank flange so the flywheel would go back in the same spot. Is it a new flywheel? Was it balanced? There are no timing marks on the flywheel. Does the gear on the starter line up with the flywheel teeth? Does the engine turn over? Would like to help.

How do i time the flywheel of 4jx1 engine

while the bolt holes appear to be symmetrical you will probably find that all but one will screw in easily you may have to turn the flywheel a hole at a time until all the bolts screw in finger tight. Some flywheels have a dowel to line up the holes

05 Land Rover Freelander Engine replacement---Flywheel bolt holes will not line up and I can't find why. Engine is correct

The fly wheel bolts will not line up unless you turn the flywheel one hole at a time The arrangement is so that the balance of the flywheel in relation to the crank shaft is maintained . So offer up the flywheel and see how many holes line up . turn it one hole at a time and more holes will line up . Keep going until all the bolts screw in finger tight . If you have a tight one then move the flywheel again as all the bolts have to fit finger tight and not need force to turn

Citroen Berlingo 1.9d. 2002. Fitted with DELPHI injector pump. Timing of cam belt & flywheel is by locking

I have been doing research on the Delphi pump and it apparently is associated with lucas/cav and as such is timed by the use of a dial test indicator that, through the use of a plunger and cam, runs on the cam block in the pump and determines when injection begins. Initial timing is to set the flywheel on the injection timing mark and the pump flange mark set on the timing case mark. To get it exact I would recommend that you have a diesel pump shop do the timing using the correct tools. As the pump is not electronic as such (from my research into Delphi ) it is basically a manual injector with a electronic controlled governor. Any way the best advice is to have a pump expert set the timing.

Crank position sensor is hitting flywheel flywheel got damaged somehow can I bend it down with out a problem or is a new one a must need

What type of car is this..but to answer your question the flywheel would have to be out of round to make contact with the crank sensor i suspect you have a cracked or broken flywheel most of the time they will break at the center of the flywheel where the crankshaft attaches to the flywheel and would still drive for some time
